After Being Accused Of Altering Documents To Prove Himself As Bitcoin Creator, Craig Wright Fires Back

Craig Wright has long proclaimed that he is the creator of Bitcoin and the true identity associated with the pseudonym Satoshi Nakamoto. However, there are been many people that have come forward to demonstrate evidence that nothing could be further from the truth. Wright has decided to stand up and do something about it, as he recently announced that he would be holding anyone – individuals, websites, and companies – liable for false claims and “harassing” him.

Wright has never gone back on his claims, but many of his critics have consistently pointed out the lack of evidence that Wright has provided. In fact, there have been many to dive into research to show that there is no way that Wright himself created Bitcoin. One of the biggest naysayers has been WikiLeaks, which posted a thread to Twitter to say that Wright had actually altered documents to make it look like he was Nakamoto.

Right now, it is nearly impossible to find Wright online. His former handle only registers as a dead end on Twitter, and even Facebook does not have much information. However, according to reports from Amb Crypto, he tweeted about a law in the UK – “Protection from Harassment Act 1997 c. 40 & Malicious Falsehood.” In the tweet, he explains that he is basically protected under this act as the result of “being destroyed by a conman.”

The tweet goes on, noting that Wright will be taking “aggressive” efforts against the people that make false and erroneous claims. He claimed that the public “wanted to know” who was the real force behind Bitcoin, and that they now get to learn in a way that will “completely eradicate the scams” that the crypto industry holds while holding people responsible. He comments that the reader cannot use the free speech laws to hide behind and that it does not cover harassment, libel, or slander. For anyone that decided to report malicious words against him, he threatens that they can “expect to be living in a barrel” when he and his lawyers are done.

He adds that the lawsuits that he could file would easily hold up in court, as long as the defendant held motives like the ones he described. He used the examples of Greers Ltd v Pearman and Corder Ltd., and Kaye v Robertson to further justify how a court would react.

There have been mixed reactions to the tweets, considering that it is likely that Wright has just as many followers as trolls. Alistair Milne, a well-known crypto investor, commented that that lack of a lawsuit would be indicative that Wright does not believe in his ability to prove himself not to be a fraud. Challenging Milne, he challenged, “Think I am not serious… watch”

Ultimately, the threats of lawsuits haven’t stopped plenty of Twitter users from calling Wright a fraud, almost to the point of it becoming humorous on social media. However, with no account even found on the social media website by pretty much anyone with a small amount of involvement in cryptocurrency or without it, Wright doesn’t look like he’s responding publicly for now.
